The 3 Ways of Committing Burglary
In Texas, there are three different ways of committing burglary. The first way is by entering a building or home with the intent to commit a felony, theft, or assault. The second way is by remaining concealed in a building with the intent to commit a felony, theft, or assault. And the third way is by entering a building and attempting, whether successfully or unsuccessfully, to commit a felony, theft, or assault.
What Is a Burglary of a Habitation?
Burglary of a habitation carries the harshest level of punishment than any other burglary. The term “habitation” is broad and includes any structure or vehicle that is used for overnight accommodations. If it has the basic necessities of water, heat, electricity, and some furniture, it can be considered a habitation. Therefore, burgling a house, an apartment, a dorm room, a mobile home, or an RV carries the harshest consequences.
Consequences of Home Burglaries
Burglary of a habitation is a first- or second-degree felony, depending on the intended or attempted crime.
You are charged with a first-degree felony if a burglary involves a habitation and a crime other than theft. This can include sexual assault, kidnapping, or assault. You can have a fine of up to $10,000 and a prison sentence ranging from 5 to 99 years.
You are charged with a second-degree felony if it involves a burglary of a habitation and the intended crime is theft or misdemeanor assault. You can be fined up to $10,000 and/or get a prison sentence ranging from 2 to 20 years.
